Re: Wake a newborn to feed?

My kids were all less than 6 pounds when they came home and jaundiced. We woke to feed til weight gain was better. However, if weight gain is ok, I'd let it go.

When DD was 4 days old she slept for 6 hours. I was thrilled. I mentioned it at the ped the following day, and my ped was mortified! We were told every 3 hours til she hit 8 pounds.
